"It did make me quite nervous, especially as he was right there as I walked out," said Florence. "He's a real hero of mine. His music is incredible, so it was a real honor to have him there."

Although Kanye had expressed interest in watching the taping during a photo shoot the two had together, Florence admitted she was surprised to actually see him there.

The singer went on to describe the peculiarities of her show that night, describing it as "surreal" to perform in the desert city.
